|SUGGEST A SITE||ARCHIVES|
Valentine's Day is coming up soon, and you can't surf anywhere without being exposed to countless ads for gifts to give to your special someone. Of course, there are sites offering more practical advice as well, so let's visit some of those.|
Stomp Tokyo, the parent site to my little page, is making its own stab at crass commercialism by publishing their Top Ten List of Overlooked Love Stories. Those movies which may have slipped under your romantic radar are offered here, with reviews of a couple of paragraphs each, and a link to purchase each one online. Probably a good thing to print out and take to the video store on V-Day when looking for that romantic flick.
HomeArts has a fun Valentine's day page this year. Scroll down past the buttons leading you into their online store and soak in the dozens of articles about food, flowers, romance... it's enough to make a cynical cat sick. But there is some good advice tucked away in here and most of the authors have a sense of humor, too.
If that's not enough, swing by Romance 101 for even more sappy love related stuff. With departments like "Random Acts of Romance" and "How to End Your Love Letter," you'll either be in heaven or heaving your guts out, depending on your disposition. Still, even the sardonic among us will find some funny stuff at this site, especially the articles like What Not to Say to your Girlfriend's Parents.
Most folks would vote for chocolate as the world's number one aphrodisiac, but there are many different kinds of foods reputed to put one in that special mood. Johan's Guide to Aphrodisiacs is a comprehensive sourcebook about such foods and substances, from the legendary Spanish Fly to Viagra and pine nuts, not to mention alcohol. Each item on the list has an extensive description and discussion of its effects, plus any side effects you may experience. It's probably wise to steer clear of the chemicals presented here, but the use of vegetables as aphrodisiacs is pretty harmless. Should the aphrodisiacs described here not work for you, Johan kindly provides a guide to cursing in Swedish. Now that's sexy.
